2022 Arbo-READ-um Community Read Event
Join Tredyffrin Public Library and Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens for the 2nd annual Arbo-READ-um Community Read Event. The Arbo-READ-um event is a program series born from a collaboration between the library and Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens. During the program, the library and the arboretum work together to provide opportunities to promote literacy, library and arboretum usage, and community conversations by encouraging Tredyffrin Township to come together by reading and discussing a single book.
Tredyffrin Public Library and Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens are excited to announce the book selection for the 2022 Arbo-READ-um event.
Under the Sky We Make by Kimberly Nicholas, PhD
The library and arboretum also suggest to read The Future We Choose: The Stubborn Optimist’s Guide to the Climate Crisis by Christiana Figueres & Tom Rivett-Carmac as a supplement to Under the Sky We Make.
